Checkers Around the World Invented Checkers Variants

Checkers 4 Game
(1980)

Checkers 4 box top

Checkers 4 game used a larger board and four sets of colored checker pieces to accommodate two to four players. The X4 board was similar to a standard 8 x 8 checkerboard, but employed an additional three rows, eight ranks wide, at the top and bottom of the board and three ranks, eight rows wide, at both sides. This new checkerboard format created the appearance of a Greek cross.

The other side of the checkers 4 game board displayed a standard 8 x 8 checkerboard that could be used for a game of traditional checkers. Included were four sets of checker pieces: red, black, ivory and gold. Red and black were usually placed opposite each other, as were ivory and gold.

The checkers 4 game rules were similar to traditional checkers and had two possible methods to king a single checker, but the players chose these methods before the game began. The first was according to the traditional rules, wherein a piece had to reach the last or king row on the opponent’s side of the board. The second method required that a checker piece simply reached any edge to the left, right or opposite of the opponent making the moves.

Checkers 4 game could be played with two, three or four players. If two opponents only decided to play the game, they would use two sets of checker pieces and decide to play either side by side or on opposite ends.

The double sided game board made Checkers 4 a good choice because the players had the option of engaging in an interesting checkers variant with other opponents or taking on a challenging game of strategy between each other.
